Jeni’s Birthday Weekend

Jeni’s birthday is Feb. 19, which this year was on a Friday, near the President’s Day celebration.  Matt & Suzanne was able to come over on Thursday to spend the weekend with Jeni.

Thursday night we went to Red, White & Brew for dinner and a catching up conversation.  The food was good, but the service left a lot to be desired.  Matt & Suzanne went back to the Wild Horse Pass Casino where they are staying during their visit, and we headed back to the MoHo.

On Friday, Jeni’s birthday, we met at Jeni’s condo.  She wanted to go to the show, so we went and saw Valentine’s Day.  It was a good movie, more of a chick flick but not to bad for us men.  Then instead of going out to dinner, Jeni wanted me to cook my homemade spaghetti, of course made with ground turkey.  Everyone must have liked as there was no leftovers.

On Saturday we met at the Mesa Marketplace, which was jammed even thought it was raining.  We only bought a garden flag, but it’ll look nice in front of Jeni’s Condo welcoming visitors.  Then we had a light dinner at Pei Wei and then on to a comedy show.IMG_0147

The show was called “Dogs Gone Wild” starring Todd Oliver.  It started with a magic show, which wasn’t that good.  But then Todd Oliver came on after intermission with his dogs.  He’s a ventriloquist that uses dogs instead of dummies.  Here’s a video on him appearing on David Letterman.  You’ll get a flavor of the show.  It was very funny.  After the show the dogs and Todd were in the lobby so you could meet them and buy videos.  Linda ignored Todd, but really held up the line for the dogsIMG_0150IMG_0155 It was a great weekend having the whole family together.  And everyone had a good time.
